vCenter CPU Usage reaches 3000 % in VIMTOP

The issue got started after upgrading the vCenter Server 7.0 Update 3h | 13 SEP 2022 | ISO Build 20395099. We have noticed the CPU of the VC went very high and couldn’t login to the VC. We tried a few options like restarting the services and rebooting the VC but nothing helped to fix the issue.

Later we identified the VPXA log rotation was very fast, every 5 -7 mins new logs are generated so raised the ticket with VMWare and it is confirmed that it is a known issue on this patch and recommended upgrading the VC to the latest.

After upgrading the VC to the vCenter Server 7.0 Update 3i | 08 DEC 2022 | ISO Build 20845200 verified the CPU and it is less than 10%.

We didn’t find any resolved issue in the patch release notes but the latest patch helped to fix the issue.

Note: VMware has released another new patch so pls plan to go with whatever latest available patch.
